From Brett Kelly:
Creating things –books, blog posts, paintings, original origami, whatever– requires that you allow your idea to take shape over time. It’s quite probable that your finished product will be a whole lot different from how you envisioned it in line at the Orange Julius, but if you can let the concept percolate, morph and shape-shift along the way, you’ll probably realize that was what you’d wanted to create all along.
Our ideas need to evolve in order to succeed. The hardest part is letting them stop being what they were in order to become what they are.
The great idea you had, the one that will never happen, pales in comparison to the good idea that you actually do.
